Kid Friendly Taco Cups

Serving Size: 12-16 taco cups


  • 1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can pinto, kidney or black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • taco toppings of your choice:  lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream
  • additional cheese, avocados , black olives, salsa and cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a regular sized muffin tin with non stick spray. Add two wonton wrapper to each muffin cup (I criss cross the wrappers). 
  2. Bake 5-7 minutes until lightly golden brown. Watch them carefully so they don't get too brown.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside. In a large skillet over medium heat cook the ground beef or turkey until browned. Drain off any grease. 
  4. Add the taco seasoning, water and drained beans. Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through.  
  5. Spoon two tablespoon of the meat and bean mixture into each wonton cup. Top with shredded cheese. Return to the oven and bake an additional 5-7 minutes until cheese melts.
  6. Carefully remove the cups from the oven and garnish with your favourite taco toppings.
